Indiana Senator Mike Braun is one of 5 lawmakers who are introducing the Promising Pathway Act.
The bill, which will be introduced to congress, is supposed to help Americans with ALS and other life-threatening diseases get early access to promising treatments.
“Americans with life-threatening and terminal diseases like ALS don’t have time to waste on a bureaucratic journey through red tape, only to be denied access,” says Senator Braun. “I’m proud that the Promising Pathway Act is now a bipartisan solution to help these Americans get access to life-saving treatments.”
Treatments eligible for provisional approval under the act must have substantial evidence of safety and positive outcomes.
Braun says the bill has bipartisan support.
